Not really an app, but I like Jessica Smith on youtube.  She has a short cardio workout for people with bad knees. I also mean to try her workout for when you are not feeling well.

Thank you @CinNC. I am living off YouTube right now. I will look her up.

I subscribe to Essentrics TV from time to time. Essentrics is the name of Miranda Esmonde-White's technique, better known as Classical Stretch on PBS.

 

You get a lot - Seasons 6 through 12 of Classical Stretch and all of the Essentrics workouts, which I think are better than CS. Miranda's daughter Sahra leads some of the Essentrics, and they have newer girls who lead very good workouts. A blend of toning, stretching, tai chi and barre. Filmed in beautiful locations. 

 

I used to subscribe to YogaGlo, but now I subscribe to Gaia because it's less expensive.

@Laura14 I have rethought the Nike Training app a little. I did a weight workout on there last night that was pretty good. So for some stuff it might be good for you. I find it a little clunky because there's so much stuff on there. It's not like traditional videos. The ones I have done basically say do X for 60 seconds or whatever and it times it and then moves on to the next thing. It does give you a little preview time so see the exercise before you start. Worth a download since it's free.

 

I'm thinking I might start using it for weight workouts. Sitting on the couch staring at the free weights doesn't seem effective!

I've never tried it but have heard good things about Fitness Blender on YouTube.

@Laura14  - my son uses the app BodBot, he likes it.  He downloaded the app for me, but I have tried it yet.
